john christopher stevens. in the interest of time i won't read the entire congressional record but only an excerpt. it said mr. speaker, i rise with my colleagues to honor, celebrate and remember ambassador john christopher chris stevens. a son of northern california and the bay area, ambassador stevens tragically lost his life in the greatest service to his country. selflessly and courageously representing american values in a foreign nation he knew intimately and cared for deeply. in his diplomatic capacity, ambassador stevens brought a profound and prolific knowledge of arab world and middle east to his assignment. his exemplary gift for making personal connections was invaluable as his role as specific representative and ambassador to one of the most complex and challenging regions of the world. therefore as we join in recognizing ambassador stevens am myself midst a sober outpouring of praise from his family, colleagues, fellow americans and the leaders of this nation, we remember also that chris stevens was beloved by many libyans as well. therefore on behalf of the residents of n

to the deaths of four americans, including the u.s. ambassador, christopher stevens. >>> also on capitol hill today, the fiscal cliff negotiations are, oh, hmm, well, at best rumbling along. the house is set to vote on plan "b," john boehner is proposing as a safety net if the fiscal cliff negotiations don't work out. boehner's plan "b," though, has little support among republicans and less support among democrats and if it does manage to pass the house, president obama has said he would veto it if it came to his desk. joining me now, dana bash. and just to explain to our viewers what plan "b" is, john boehner's plan would what? raise the taxes on millionaires but protect tax cuts for everyone else. >> exactly. in the way the speaker and republican leaders have written it and framed it is to keep tax cuts in place for everybody making up to $1 million, which the speaker says over and over in public and private conversations that means that 99% of americans would have their tax cuts in place. you're right that the big scramble right now is for the speaker to get his own republicans onboard to

deficiencies. u.s. ambassador to libya, christopher stevens and three other americans were killed in that attack. i'm joined by elise labott. what's the latest? >> reporter: well, the latest is this morning secretary clinton's deputies will be testifying, john. deputy secretary tom nides and william burns. secretary clinton is still suffering from a concussion. what i think is really interesting this morning is who's going to be chairing the morning session with the senate foreign relations committee. that's the chairman, john kerry, who is tapped to be the next secretary of state. now, of course there's a lot of questions in this panel report about the leadership at the state department, but there's also a lot of criticism of congress for not supporting resources for the state department security. let's take a listen to the fine balance that john kerry is trying to walk between trying to be tough on the state department, but also trying to show a little support. >> the report specifically calls on resources. there's a need to put about $2.5 billion a year over a number of years i
